Interested in contributing to NPA proposals, policies or activities? NPA has specialist member groups for landscape conservation, marine conservation, park management, environmental planning and assessment, and field activities (such as bushwalking and biodiversity surveys).
None of our natural wonders appear to be safe from the “development” agenda of the NSW Government. The aim of the National Party to return the Murray Valley National Park, the largest area of continuous red gum forest in the world, to state forest for logging shows how far we have fallen in the protection of nature.
We are delighted to welcome Ms Alix Goodwin as new CEO of the National Parks Association of NSW.
Alix follows in the footsteps of Kevin Evans, who has held the post since 2009. Kevin finished up on Friday, 4th August, and is moving on to take up exciting new ventures in the beautiful Bellinger Valley area of northern NSW. We greatly appreciate his work and commitment over the past seven and a half years, and wish him all the best for the future.
